RCMP and CVSE nab speeders and distracted drivers…

PRINCE GEORGE, BC: On Wednesday, March 3, 2021, the Prince George Traffic Services Unit and Prince George Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement (CVSE) joined together to enforce Motor Vehicle Act regulations throughout Prince George City.

Over an eight-hour period, Traffic Services members and CVSE officers conducted mobile checks and set up checkpoints to ensure vehicles and drivers were maintaining safe driving habits.

Here are some of the statistics from their efforts:

Prince George Traffic Services:

1 x Serve driving prohibition
2 x Excessive speed impoundments (starts at seven day’s impoundment)
7 x Speeding tickets
1 x Speed in a school zone ticket
1 x Fail to wear seatbelt tickets
1 x Fail to slow down and move over ticket
14 x Use electronic device tickets
2 x Illegible plate tickets
2 x Notice and Order for window tint

Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement:

14 x Use electronic device tickets
2 x Fail to slow down and move over tickets
1 x Disobey traffic control device ticket
1 x Speeding ticket
2 x Notice and Order for window tint
1 x Notice and Order for illegal emissions modifications

“Drivers should be aware that even though they don’t see us while they are using their phones and driving, we see them. The 28 tickets we handed out for using an electronic device makes this very apparent,” says Sgt. Kyle Ushock, head of the Prince George Traffic Services Unit.

March is Distracted Driving Awareness month so drivers can expect to see more of these joint enforcement efforts throughout the city during this time. Distracted driving includes using an electronic device, personal grooming, eating/drinking, reading, pets, other passengers and not knowing your route.
